Provide everyone with enjoyable activities that develop intellectual, mathematical, analytical, visual, & personal skills. Motto: "Transforming lives through chess." BayAreaChess started as a parent volunteer organization when our founder’s son moved to a school with a low-quality, high-cost commercial program. Our work was so successful other parents requested programs at their schools. We quickly evolved from a local chess club into a truly professional organization by applying sound business practices to support our rapid growth. We disrupted chess enrichment, transforming chess coaching from part-time contract gig to viable career as employees w/ benefits & HR support. While COVID suspended/closed chess clubs nationwide, we pioneered online offerings & grew. After 15 years, we are one of the most successful chess organizations in the US & the foremost 501(c)(3) non-profit chess organization on the West Coast. Still, our core values remain unchanged: treat all children like we would treat our own. Why you should volunteer at BayAreaChess? Here at BayAreaChess, our mission is to Transform Lives Through Chess. We offer a great enrichment programs for all ages, hold regular tournaments, and more! Our team is full of amazing staff and our diligence is shown by our achievements. Our recent awards include Chess Club of the Year in 2018 by US Chess and Organizer of the Year 2017 by US Chess.
